What is an Extensive Factory Audit

The Extensive Factory Audit (EFA) also calls Manufacturing Audit, Supplier Audit is part of a quality assurance program to minimize risks and improve your supply chain performance.

The Extensive Factory Audit is frequently used to evaluate potential new suppliers in China & Asia and monitor regular suppliers especially your supplier is a trading company. It comes to vets your factory’s capability to fulfill your orders in the desired quantity, meet your quality requirements, and comply with shipping timeframes.

Much of the risks associated with production in China can be eliminated by ensuring you are working with a reputable and capable manufacturing partner. To achieve the best pricing, you need to be sure that you are dealing with a genuine manufacturer and not a ‘middle man’.

The Extensive Factory Audit usually performed during one or two days at your manufacturer’s premises. We can arrange an Audit within 48 hours and guarantee your manufacturing audit report is available one working day after the audit.

The trained and certified auditors conduct an on-site evaluation of a factory based on International Standard, ISO 9001, and other AQI checkpoints critical to understanding and qualifying your supplier.
